My wife & I stayed here for 4 nights and it was absolutely lovely. Very peaceful & quiet - just what we needed! However, to get here is another matter - as it's hidden away in little alleys and not so easy for the first time traveller. You can ask almost anyone within the square (who's a local) and they'd be happy to guide you - some will charge for this service so pay no more than 20-25 MDH. We were ripped off (but I won't say how much).
Breakfast was the same every day, so do venture out into the streets to find an alternative. The staff were extremely helpful & friendly and even offered maps as well as take you out to some of the local tourist sites. The maid was also helpful and I had to dig out my school French to have a basic (& I mean a very basic conversation) with her.
We occupied the ground floor room (one of the largest) and it was quite spacious and very clean. There was an oil heater that we had to use all night as it did get cold (well it would around beginning of February).
Overall a great experience that we'd love to do again.
